Orlando Magic assistant coach Patrick Ewing reportedly has a "good chance" of getting the Bobcats' head coaching job. The former New York Knicks star center interviewed for the Charlotte position Thursday and Friday, and the New York Post reported that a source said he has a good chance to land the job. Ewing has been an assistant coach with the Magic since 2007. He recently has been receiving interest as a possible head coach. Ewing interviewed with Charlotte president Rod Higgins and general manager Rich Cho on Thursday. Ewing also knows Charlotte owner Michael Jordan from his playing days. Ewing completed his fifth season with the Magic and has been an assistant coach for nine seasons, also serving in Washington and Houston. Ewing has one year left on his contract with the Magic. However, the Post reported the Magic might be releasing coach Stan Van Gundy and his staff soon. The source told the Post that Ewing would not be considered for the Magic head coaching job. "My goal is to be a head coach," Ewing told The Post in late March when the Magic visited the Garden. "I hope to get interviews everywhere theres a job open." Ewing also may be considered for an assistant job with the Knicks if interim coach Mike Woodson is retained. The process is expected to last several weeks. The team is also interested in Indiana assistant Brian Shaw, former Portland and Seattle coach Nate McMillan, and former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, sources told ESPN.com.
